If you have played through KotOR II: TSL with a female Exile, you may remember that Darth Sion, one of the main villains of the game, practically falls in love, albeit in a rather creepy way, with the female Exile as he becomes attached to her throughout the course of the game, and he expresses such feelings to the female Exile during the Exile's final confrontation with him on Malachor.
What if Sion could develop such feelings to a male Exile as well? That's where the development of this Darth Sion and Male Exile Mod came from.
What this mod do is to make changes to the gender checks of Sion's dialogue, so Sion can also develop the same attachment to a male Exile. If you're interested to see how a gay version of Sion's affection for the Exile played out, then this mod is for you.
First and foremost, make sure you have The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod (TSLRCM) installed since TSLRCM is REQUIRED for this mod to work.
***** ATTENTION! STEAM USERS: If you have the Steam version of KotOR 2, I STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST using the Steam Workshop version of TSLRCM if you want to use this mod. Instead, I will suggest you use the installer (.exe) version of TSLRCM, which can be downloaded from here:
If you're going to use more KotOR 2 mods in addition to TSLRCM, using the installer version is always much safer than the Steam Workshop version, because it gives you more control in installing mods and minimizing mod conflicts as much as possible. *****
Extract the Darth Sion and Male Exile Mod.zip you downloaded to anywhere you like, as long as it is not within the KoOR 2 directory. Run TSLPatcher.exe. You will notice that this mod provides two installation options. You may only choose one of these options:
- Option A: This option will make Darth Sion express interest in both male and female Exiles.
- Option B: This option will make Darth Sion express interest in male Exiles only, and Sion will interact with female Exiles the same way he did with male Exiles in vanilla TSL.
Once you have chosen the installation option you want, point the installer to your KotOR 2 directory and let the installer do its magic.
NOTE: During installation, a new folder named "backup" will be created by TSLPatcher in the same folder as the TSLPatcher. Do not delete the folder or any of the files within the folder if you are planning on uninstalling this mod.
Regardless of which installation option you have chosen, follow below steps to uninstall this mod:
Step 1: Go to the "backup" folder created by the TSLPatcher from this mod, cut and paste 153HAR.mod, 903MAL.mod and 907MAL.mod into the Modules folder in your KotOR 2 directory.
Step 2: Go to the "backup" folder created by the TSLPatcher from this mod, cut and paste 702kor_loc.mod and 907mal_loc.mod into the lips folder in your KotOR 2 directory.
Step 2: Go to your Override folder and delete sion.dlg.
4) KNOWN ISSUES:
None currently known. If you find any bugs or problems, please let me know.
5) MOD COMPATIBILITY:
Apart from TSLRCM, which is required for this mod to work, any other mods that modify Sion's dialogue will likely not be compatible with this mod. One known exception is Extended Enclave, since Extended Enclave did not edit the same Sion dialogue as this mod.
You may use this mod as you see fit, including showing it in screenshots or making it compatible with your mod. However, please give credit to me, and DO NOT release your mods containing modified files from my mod without my permission. Thank you.
I do not use nor support Steam Workshop, so I do not wish any of my mods to be uploaded to Steam Workshop.
